Mercedes-Benz SLC Might Get Axed From the Production Line

The low sales figures of the Mercedes-Benz SLC was recently confirmed by Daimler CEO Dieter Zetsche. This puts the future of the convertible in jeopardy. “These speciality cars have lost their share in our total portfolio,” Autocar quoted Zetsche. “For a particularly long time, China has led growth, and China shows little interest in cars such as these,” the Daimler boss added. “Our portfolio is not something defined for eternity.
